Sunday Arvo Session Featuring - Geoff Willingham
Hailing from Toronto, Ontario, Geoff Willingham aka “Geoff Star” has been the lead guitarist for acts that span the musical spectrum from rock to reggae, ska and hip hop. With undeniable energy and passion for music, Geoff has been touring non-stop since starting his professional career at 15.
Geoff is currently touring with Juno award-winning artist Jully Black.
A founding member of the band Rebel Emergency, Geoff moved to New York City in 2004 to record their first album, Captured by a Vision. With the help of Grammy award winning producer Gordon “Commissioner Gordon” Williams (Lauryn Hill, Carlos Santana, Will Smith), the band was able to reach new heights. The success of the album, which received rave reviews (NOW Magazine gave it 4.5/5 stars), led to extensive touring in Canada, USA and Jamaica. Rebel Emergency has now released three studio albums.
Geoff has toured extensively over his career, sharing the stage with major recording artists like Snoop Dogg, The Roots, Buju Banton, Gogol Bordello, Bedouin Soundclash, Walk Off The Earth, The English Beat, Carly Rae Jepsen, USS, and many more. Geoff has also assumed the role of Musical Director for artists like KO, Daniel Wesley & Rebel Emergency during the highly successful “Joint Venture Tour.”
